With every passing day, the capitalist system spins deeper into crisis. Politicians, bankers and bosses are trying to force us to pay for their mess – by slashing our jobs, pensions and wages. But across the globe, people are fighting back. The Arab Spring has inspired resistance all over the world, general strikes have rocked Europe, and the call to #Occupy and resist was taken up in over 1,700 cities world-wide. Millions of people are beginning to question the logic of the capitalist system.
Join us for this one-day conference as we discuss the next steps of the movement and the best ways to challenge capitalism.
